Triple Bay Yacht Club ... a free-flowing structure.

Amaala, the ultra-luxury development coming up along Saudi Arabia’s north-western coast, has revealed the iconic design for its Triple Bay Yacht Club, inspired by local eroded rock features and traditional air movement architecture. The club features a terrace restaurant, infinity pool deck and rooftop cabana lounge.

Set within the Triple Bay Marina of the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Nature Reserve, Amaala’s new yacht club is a keystone development with a captivating free-flowing structure that aims to create a one-of-a-kind meeting point between land and sea.

Designed by leading architecture firm HKS, the signature 7,900-sq-m yacht club is the centrepiece of the stunning marina development plans.

Drawing design inspiration from two sets of geometry, HKS first looked to the unique rock formations on the Red Sea coastline to create the club’s bespoke cantilevered terraces, which echo the natural shape of the surrounding cliffs, eroded over time by wind and sea.

“HKS has created a signature piece of architecture at the heart of Triple Bay, and I look forward to seeing the concept become a globally iconic meeting place for luxury yachting enthusiasts from all over the world,” stated CEO John Pagano.

Covering 7,900 sq m and spread over four levels, the ultra-luxurious club is set to create a home from home for its members whether to do business, relax, entertain or take part in yachting events.

Arrival is a key moment for guests by land or by water, with the entrance set within an arch that forms a shaded plaza and frames dramatic views to the Red Sea. The area has a mirrored vaulted ceiling over a star-lit floor which creates an alternative night sky for guests in the evening.

The interior of the club, also designed by HKS, along with the landscaping detail, is as visually stimulating as the exterior, with unparalleled attention to detail to ensure guests remain connected to the landscapes around them.

Complementing the yacht club’s functions, the 10-hectare basin hosts a 120-berth marina for yachts up to 130 m in length, and is designed for both residents and yachting events, regattas and launches.
